to be careful. this tip came over the weekend, not long after the shooting of officer jesse hartnett on thursday night. a woman told another officer that the man who shot hartnett is part of a group of four and is not the most radical of them. edward archer ambushed the officer late thursday night, shooting him several times. officer hartnett is still in the hospital. archer is in custody and charged with attempted murder. the anonymous tipster says three other men still frequent the 6100 block of pine street. we asked police how they are handling these events. >> it's a troubling time. we've been here before and again, officers unfortunately are in a bad situation right now. they understand it's part of the job we do. it's part of the reason why you do this job because you understand that there are a lot of good people out here in society and one bad apple isn't going to change our attitude how we deal with the public. >> reporter: the tipster named
two mosques including one on 60th street and 45th and walnut. she claims that the suspect in the officer ambush became radicalized at the second mosque. members there told us they don't believe those claims and they preach against extremism. the fbi is involved but for the time being officers and the philadelphia police department have been notified about this tip and are working in pairs. for now live at philadelphia police headquarters, matt delucia, "nbc 10 news." >> it's 4:35. a philadelphia police officer about to go on guard detail at the hospital where officer jesse heart net was recovering had to fight off an attacker. a guy trying to take the officer's gun at presbyterian hospital. investigators say the man asked for money outside the hospital, the officer gave him five bucks, when they got inside he tried to take his gun. the man allegedly told officers he was going to use to the rob a chinese restaurant. police said the incident was in no way related to the shooting
of officer hartnett. however, this is an example of the type of individuals that our officers face daily when performing duties as police officers. donald trump referenced the ambush of officer hartnett on "meet the press." he was discussing his plan not to allow muslims in the united states. trump said he wouldn't ban all muslims from the country. >> business people, if they are proven but we have to find out what the problem is. now, we can be politically correct and never discuss it but we can't let that happen to our country. >> trump later tackled the nfl and his rally in reno, trump doesn't watch football anymore because like america it's not as tough as it used to be. >> 4:36. we have breaking news in the music world. singer david bowie died sunday after a battle with cancer. his official page announced his death, the statement released said that bowie died surrounded by friends and family and more

interview the a lot of candidates just to pick their brains, get ideas that they have, different ideas about organization. and just trying to talk through the process. i kind of think that tom is more of that kind of a candidate than a real serious candidate. i would be a little surprised if he emerged as the number one candidate. >> i have to agree with ray. i think his age may be a tough sell for eagles nation. coughlin not a strange tear the eagles, his first nfl coaching job was wide receiver coach of the birds in the mid 1980s. vai sikahema, nbc 10. tracy. >> thanks, vai. 4:48 now. if you are in a union you want to hear this. today the supreme court is hearing arguments on union dues. the justices will be asked to decide whether state government workers who choose not to join a union can still be required to pay a share of the dues. those dues go toward covering the cost of negotiating new contracts. new information about volkswagen's plans to fix the diesel engines that cheat.
